Attempted Break-In Leads to Police Commentary

The status said, “Missed Connections……Here’s you, prowling around the Randal Lane neighborhood a little after 2 this morning. It’s under 10 degrees out and you still care enough to check someone’s car to make sure they locked it. They did and you left disappointed. We want to meet you but by the time we saw the video, you were gone. Don’t worry kind stranger, we will be out there every night looking to reward you for being a “good neighbor”. Take care and stay warm. Stay Safe, Sgt. G.”

The individual is wearing a light-colored hoodie and sweatpants. As well, the suspect has a backpack on. This person has not been identified at this time. Any information regarding the incident should be brought to the Caledonia Police Department.
